These cookies are a little kooky for me, but I guess sometimes I’m as susceptible to the charms of decorations as anyone else! And, if you can’t go all out during the holidays – when can you?
These cookies are really all about fun, fun on the outside, fun on the inside. I’ve adapted a recipe from an article I cut out years ago from a magazine.
Secret Cookies, Makes about 30 3″ cookies
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 t. baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 t. vanilla
- 2-1/2 c. all purpose flour
- 1/3 c. dark chocolate chips, melted
- 1/4 t. almond extract
- Sprinkles or colored sugar for coating
Preheat the oven to 375. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl, cream well.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Then the flour.
Stir 3/4 c. of dough into the chocolate.
Roll a 1″ ball of chocolate dough and then cover it with a thin pancake of vanilla dough.
Then roll each ball in sprinkles or sugar.
Put them on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes.
I added an extra white chocolate drizzle to the plain sugar ones to dress them up for a party!
